Initial carbon footprint report for construction of Sutherland car park submitted

 

first page carbon report SutherlandSustainable Business Consulting has been engaged by Built to perform the carbon reporting for the construction of the Sutherland commuter car park, which started in August 2014.

The client Transport for NSW (TfNSW) mandates that all projects with a value exceeding $10m have to submit a GHG inventory report. In April 2015 we submitted the initial report, which covered the greenhouse gas emissions six months into the project per emission source (e.g. construction and demo equipment, trucks, staff commute, embodied emissions in materials, waste, etc.), and carbon savings that were targeted. The carbon report not only contained scope 1 and scope 2 emission sources, but an extensive set of scope 3 emission sources, which gave a complete picture of the greenhouse gas emissions that were caused by the project thus far. The report also included an uncertainty assessment of the scope 1 emissions.

The report calculated the net environmental carbon benefits of the recycling efforts, given that more than 95% of the demolition waste was successfully re-used, re-purposed, or recycled.

The report adheres to the following standards and guidelines:

  • TfNSW Greenhouse Gas Inventory Guide for Construction Projects
  • The Greenhouse Gas Protocol, A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (GHG Protocol)
  • ISO 14040:2006
  • ISO 14044:2006
  • GHG Protocol: Product Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard
  • GHG Protocol: Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Accounting and Reporting Standard

Upon completion of the project we will calculate the overall carbon emissions and issue the final report.
